"Frank Ricci brilliantly yet simply explores the critical tenants of leadership, duty, and accountability using his own real-world experience in the field and as a leader. His story is one for all Americans to embrace and learn from, and his tying of civic duty and leadership to that of our founding fathers makes this a read for the history books!"

This is a book that all Fire service personnel should read. It covers many topics that all tie into increasing your influence in your department. I will read this book several times to allow all of Frank’s points to really sink in. If you want to open your eyes to the truth behind what it means and takes to be a leader, this is a great book to help you. I had the pleasure of meeting Howard Blithe while I was reading this book. Howard wrote a piece in this book and it was easy to see why Frank chose him to contribute. What an honor to have met him.
